Intermountain Health to sell dental clinic

Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Health is selling its dental clinic to Atchison Community Health Clinic, a federally qualified health center in Atchison, Kan.

The sale is one of several changes the health system is making to its medical clinics in the state. The health system announced plans to close its Duchesne Clinic in Kansas City June 1, and will also transfer ownership of its St. Vincent Clinic in Leavenworth, Kan., to the Atchison clinic. The Duchesne and St. Vincent clinics are both primary care centers.

Intermountain Health referred to the transfers of its two clinics as a "strategic decision" that will help ensure patients continue to receive high quality healthcare at an affordable cost. 

Intermountain Health said in a news release that it signed a letter of intent for the deals April 9, with the final transfer expected to take place by June 30.

The health system also said it donated $4.2 million to the Atchison clinic to help the FQHC support patients at its two new clinics.
